Steelers vs. Rams Free Pick
Points shouldn't be at a premium when the Steelers visit the Rams at 1:00PM ET today at the Edward Jones Dome.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book GT Bets, the Rams are 1-point home favorites over the Steelers while the over/under total is currently sitting at 48 points. Both teams enter today's action with 1-1 records.
The Rams couldn't slow Alfred Morris and Matt Jones last week in Washington and will likely have issues halting Le'Veon Bell today in his return from a two-game suspension. In fact, look for Pittsburgh to continue to run its no-huddle offense in heavy doses in order to keep St. Louis from subbing and supplementing its outstanding pass rush.
Teams have to beat the Steelers in shootouts and while the Rams aren't built to win that way, they did score 34 points in Week 1 at home against the Seahawks and should have Todd Gurley in uniform for the first time in three weeks. Not to mention, Pittsburgh's pass defense is its weakness so look for the Rams to open up the play-action passing game by first establishing the run.
The over is 6-2 in the Rams' last eight home games and 6-0 in the Steelers' last six games in Week 3.
